In calling mathematics a science he implies that it has a factual subject-matter and that mathematical knowledge is on a par with other scientific knowledge; in calling it a science of patterns he expresses his commitment to a structuralist philosophy of mathematics. He links this to a defence of realism about the metaphysics of mathematics-the view that mathematics is about things that really exist. Resnik's distinctive philosophy of mathematics is here presented in an accessible and systematic form: it will be of value not only to specialists in this area, but to philosophers, mathematicians, and logicians interested in the relationship between these three disciplines, or in truth, realism, and epistemology., 278362, History of Mathematics, 278320, Mathematics, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 278366, Mathematical Logic, 278363, Mathematical Foundations, 278320, Mathematics, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 278384, Philosophy of Mathematics, 278320, Mathematics, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 922942, Maths, 922868, Popular Science, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 570964, Mathematical Theory, 564352, Mathematics, 564334, Scientific, Technical & Medical, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 4119271, Academic Philosophy, 60, Society, Politics & Philosophy, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 276315, Philosophy, 496404, History, 496508, Introduction to Philosophy, 276319, Non-Western, 496410, Philosophers, 60, Society, Politics & Philosophy, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books
